John C. Seiler, Jr., writes from California.
The neocons are gloating that Donald Trump’s poll numbers have slumped. “Donald Trump is in the midst of a fairly dramatic collapse in public opinion polls,” enthuses Peter Wehner in Commentary.
Gerald Celente likes to mock “The Brilliant” Larry Summers, top economic guru to the Clinton and Obama administrations, and therefore a primary architect of America’s economic decay, especially of its middle class.
Donald Trump already is the presumptive Republican nominee for president and easily will win Tuesday’s California primary. Yet he has continued to campaign in the state, which has revealed the top issue of this campaign: Trump vs. tyranny.
When the dollar inflates, so do oil and gas prices; that tanks sales for trucks and SUVS and increases sales for small cars (as in 2007-11). When prices stabilize or deflation hits (as in the past several years), SUV and truck sales soar, but small car sales crash.
Two neocons have put up inadvertently hilarious potted histories of the conservative movement, in particular National Review. . . . They both mythologize NR’s role in its early decades.
America boasts of its “federalism,” that the 50 states (originally 13) still are “free and independent,” as the Declaration of Independence proclaimed. The country’s name, the United States, is plural.
Up until the 1974 Depression, the only way you could avoid providing for your family—your wife staying home with the kids and a cottage up North on a lake—was if you were too lazy to work an assembly-line job that, admittedly, sometimes could be tough.
Farook and Malik died shortly after the massacre in a shoot-out with police, leaving Marquez as the face of the crime. A Facebook image of him with a funny grin under his widow’s peak was featured in many stories.
It’s Jan. 22, 2016, the 43rd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade abortion decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that has killed more than 60 million babies here.
It is great news for any campaign when an Establishment hack like Karl Rove opposes you.
No wonder the Obama regime kept the Trans-Pacific Partnership secret as long as it could. It’s far worse than even its greatest critics imagined.
Until the late 1950’s and early 60’s, the deal for government employees was that they were paid less than similar private-sector workers but got excellent benefits, especially strong pensions and almost absolute job security.
If you’re an old pro-lifer like me, you remember the many battles over China’s one-child policy. Mao actually encouraged large families. He thought population problems would be solved by communist economic planning.
Things are pretty dismal all over the country, but some places are worse than others.
The revolt against the Establishment continues. The three leading contenders for the Republican nomination for president – Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina – never have held political office.
Fourth Generation War theory provides a useful tool to understand the migrant invasion of Europe. 4GW basically is non-state warfare.
Europe lost its will to survive and is being invaded by immigrants: It discarded its Christian faith, which plunged its birth rate to half the replacement level, meaning rapid extinction no matter what.
Donald Trump is right to blame our government for its many bad trade deals with China. But he makes a mistake when attacking China’s recent devaluation of the yuan.
Rand Paul was positioned to do well at the beginning of his campaign. But his poor performance in last Thursday’s debate underlined that his campaign long ago blew it.
LBJ lied. It was part of what was called his “credibility gap,” especially about the Vietnam War. But about everything else, too. Only top LBJ historians can identify the rare instances he ever told the truth, and then by accident.
